Advisement & Retention Services

Student Retention

At Tennessee Tech University, we are committed to helping students make a successful transition to college life. This office also provides information concerning various academic assistance programs, resources and services. Central to this commitment are various academic programs, resources and services that are available to all students, not just those having academic difficulties. Assistance is available in many areas, including tutoring for several subjects, preparing for tests, developing effective study skills, writing assignments, choosing a career, changing your major and using the library. Please call, email, drop by or visit the websites for further information.


Advisement & Retention Services is involved in administering and monitoring the Flight Path Attendance Initiative and provides support for several other retention and student success programs on campus including the Provost's Micro-Grants for Student Success program, First-Year Connections, and the Living-Learning Villages.
